A truly lasting tote is made with the right materials, and our full-grain leather bags are hand made with the best U.S cow hides tanned to perfection.
Our full-grain leather is the strongest and most durable available, and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow’s life have not been been sanded, cut or shaved off. Full-grain is SIX times stronger than Buffed, Upholstery or Genuine leather. Rather than wearing out, full-grain leather will naturally condition itself with use, developing a much sought-after patina and unique character over time.
That store bought bag your friend has... well that “leather” has been stripped down and rebuilt with glues, resins and chemicals to make all 100,000 look identical...but most importantly, the best it will ever look is the day they overpaid for it at the local mall.
Your Portland Leather Goods bag is the one you will treasure for a lifetime. Whatever size tote you choose you are going to love it. However, here are a few handy suggestions in figuring out which of our four sizes best suits your lifestyle!
Small: A perfect on-the-go tote for carrying basic essentials: phone, wallet, keys, water bottle and your lunch! A great everyday purse for a lunch out with friends or a trip to the store.
Medium: Wider at the base than the small, our medium tote is a great everyday size with a little room for extra items! This is the most popular bag with our Portland Leather staff for their daily essentials. Keep in mind, however, most do not carry laptops on a daily basis, those who do have a large tote or a “Tall” tote with the crossbody strap.
Large: The large tote is our original and most popular size and is a great option for those who love to carry their life in their bag! Small enough for everyday use but large enough to handle all the extras! Able to fit a 13” MacBook plus water bottle, makeup bag, and even your sweater!
Oversized: The weekend bag! Our oversized tote is the perfect companion for trips away, flying or just throwing in the back of the car! Beloved by moms and teachers who need to carry it all, this bag will hold your life and then some!
All of our leather products are made to order. Given our attention to detail and current workload, our production time is 1 week.
Totes are shipped with USPS Priority mail (2-3 days within the US, 6-10 days international), and require Signature Confirmation upon delivery.
We do ship worldwide, but please be aware that shipping transit times vary greatly depending on the destination and local customs laws. Any customs fees charged are the responsibility of the buyer, we have no control over what destination countries charge and it varies greatly as well. We are not responsible for product loss due to customs issues.
